Edward Rendon

Prison escapee found in Folsom neighborhood

Published: Monday, Dec. 30, 2013 - 11:06 am

A walk-away inmate from a Folsom-area prison was found Sunday in a neighborhood not far from the correctional institution.

A count of inmates in minimum-security support housing at California State Prison-Sacramento by staff at 7:40 a.m. Sunday revealed that Edward Rendon, a convicted robber from Los Angeles County, was missing.

Rendon is one of 157 minimum-security inmates housed in a dormitory-style setting outside of the maximum-security perimeter of CSP-Sacramento. Minimum-security inmates usually serve sentences of three-to-five years and are convicted of offenses that are not violent, are less-serious and are not sex-related, according to officials.

When Rendon walked away from the Folsom-area prison, local, state and prison officers began a search. He was taken into custody at 1:30 p.m. Sunday near Blue Ravine Road in Folsom by California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officers who saw the inmate walking in a residential area.
